More Tennesseans filing taxes electronically

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service says Tennesseans are e-filing tax returns in record numbers.

Through March 7, the IRS had received more than 1.4 million electronic returns from Tennesseans. That is a 3.8 percent increase over the same time last year. The number of Tennesseans filing from their own computers had increased 9.8 percent over last year, to nearly 712,000.

According to the IRS, all taxpayers can use the free "fillable forms" option at http://www.irs.gov . Those with a household income of $58,000 or less also have access to free, brand-name tax preparation software on the website.

Taxpayers with a household income less than $52,000 or who are at least 60 years old can have their taxes prepared and electronically filed for them by IRS-certified volunteers. More information is available at (800) 906-9887.
